to replace secretary of defense leon panetta. joining me now to look at all this: james mann, long-time journalist and author of "the obamians: the struggle inside the white house to redefine american power"; and david ignatius, foreign affairs columnist for the "washington post." david, as we heard the president say, a well-known man around washington and foreign policy circles. what strengths does john kerry bring? >> well, the first is the one the president mentioned. he has stature, he's well-known. he's being doing foreign policy from the senate for almost three decades. he's a person well-known to leaders around the world. the second thing that people don't know as much about is that he served as an emissary for president obama in some very delicate situations. the president sent him to afghanistan to try to make a better relationship with president karzai there. kerry is widely believed to have been a success in that. he was sent to pakistan for similar mission to deal with president zardari. it's less well-known that he conveyed a message, written message to hamas to try to
re ntly vowed to address it during his second term. in a statement, the natural resources defense council called jackson an unrivaled champion of our health and environment adding -- thousands of dockworkers along the u.s. east coast and gulf coast are threatening to go on strike this weekend in a dispute over pay. the potential strike by the international longshoremen's association would effect nearly half of the country's ocean bound shipping traffic at 14 points -- ports and mark the first by the group in decades. president obama is facing calls from corporate groups to use emergency powers to rippon the strike. michigan governor rick snyder has signed into law a measure allowing michigan areas to declare bankruptcy or fall under the control of an unelected emergency manager enabled to fire public officials and nullify union contracts. state republicans approved it this month after voters repealed a similar initiative on election day. despite reimposing a measure that was rejected by popular vote, governor snyder said -- was among a number of controversial bills recently advanc
suppression. our next guest defense the tough voter id law say it is a paramount important that we protect the integrity of the process and make sure voter irregularities and voter fraud is eliminating. joining us now, attorney general of south carolina, great to have you with us.at first, your reaction to what the first lady had to sy. >> i obviously disagree with the first lady.with in every state i looked at, georgia, indiana are two states, section five, one is not a section five states. when they have had laws with a federal id for theoter registration card actually minority that is a went up in subsequent elections and participation.s. lou: when you talk about the five states, those are states because of civil rights transgressions 60 years ago, 50 years ago, they still remain under the watchful eye of the justice department for a revision in their electoral laws or procedures, right?pro >> absolutely. states have asked the federal government permission before they can implement a law thathe affects elections, but in a state passing a law, that she, went up in a state of georgia, up
spending categories, national defense, many of what we call the domestic discretionary programs would also be hit. this is a big fiscal wallop to the economy and a lot of economists believe it could cause a double-dip recession. patti ann: on the other hand we are hearing from lawmakers, some at lease on both sides that they would quickly, both houses, the house and senate pass legislation to rollback those tax hikes on at least some americans at the lower end, and that maybe they would end up keeping them for the higher end because once they are in much harder to remove those tax hikes. do you believe that that would happen? patti ann: yeah, look, i think a lot of this is high theater, this is just drama i think it's going to play out probably until december 31st, maybe it will be 11:00pm right before the stroke of midnight in the new year before these guys reach a deal, but i'm predicting they will maybe a deal i. talked to my congressional sources last night, they said the presiden the president in his overtures sounded much more conciliatory like he wanted to reach a deal. they are not
as defense secretary. you heard from the president on friday as he nominated senator john kerry as secretary of state and the new speculation about chuckle over at the pentagon. here are the comments of congressman dingell, the incoming democratic member of the house foreign affairs committee. but there is a huge opposition to the potential nomination of chuckled to become the next secretary of defense, even the president obama has not made his decision. the former senator has come under fire for statements he has made, including one where he referred to the pro-israel lobby as the "jewish lobby." what is your reaction to that remark? >> i think that remark is a troublesome and problematic. it shows that the very best, a lack of sensitivity, and at the very worst, prejudice. i am concerned about the nomination. chuck if has been in the senate for a number of years. there is not only a lot of controversy with that remark, but with some of his boats -- votes. i have been hearing it from what my constituents, mainly in opposition to his nomination. >> you mentioned his boats. there are two sets
of defenses and arguments you see in the federalists today? who writes them? who sits at home and drafts arguments we see, letters, you see -- you never [inaudible] these were people who were engaged and knew the constitution and these were not scholars. these were not people who had appropriated to themselves license, the soul license to interpret or talk about the great document. these were foreigners. these were business people. some of them who have formal education, some who did not. they cared about the country. i think you need to have that today. i think that, you know, i go back to your book, you talk about the written and unwritten constitution. the unwritten constitution is that sort of trying to bring to apply it to current events and problems and cases, and developments and the debate continues on each one of those. and that's why you see the court go different ways. that's why the arguments -- [inaudible] that's why the scholarship is so important. one thing i like about the tone of the book. it's so positive. it's refreshing. you know, it's not i have all the answers. here
for defense and so the american ability to project power abroad is going to decline and maybe rapidly. the key question, economic growth. can we get out of this 1% to 2 1/2% ban we've been in for four years now and break out of that, if we can't, the kind of commitments the government make, the government is making are just going to be unaffordable. >> you know, i think i've previously cited the noble economist, noble laureate, university of chicago who looked at this closely and shade why aren't we get growth coming and cited europe, and fell off the growth path around 3% after world war ii and he concluded, as jason was just suggesting, the welfare commitments they'made. it was unsustainable and the growth rate dropped permanently and lucas raised the question whether the united states itself was on this lower, long-term growth path. that's the question. >> so, jason, what's-- where do we go from here? particularly if you're conservative, what are your-- where does the comeback begin? does it begin in somehow accommodating the middle and saying, look, it's a progressive year and we've got to
christmas to you. >> thank you for having me. >> clayton: defense cuts set to take place in the end of the year . president obama knows this and set to expire is the bush era tax cuts . what impact will this have on the military? >> it will have an across the board impactit sequestration is so bad. we'll get across the board training to maintenance and to the next weapon system and on base things provided for families and tri-care. it hits everything. secretary panetta called it a meat axe. our readiness will be stunted by sequestration . it is bad policy. >> clayton: republicans agreed to it. you agree and say this is never going to happen. because we will get this thing done . now eight days done. is it possible to go through with a fine tooth comb and pick through. senator sessions said the fiscal cliff is like three days away. we have to read it to sign off on it. >> that's the worst. no, this is not time. let's reform it and go about it with a squaple. meet axe hacks it across the board. either we are going off of the cliff or bad short-term deal that kicks the can down the roa
increase in the deficit, the problem is it is not finance the oil. either have to eliminate the defense department or eliminate all civilian employees. you would not able to administer all this regulation if you don't do something about spending. even with tax increases, the kind i described in the previous question, would not be enough. ineffective regulation. effective regulation can be quite beneficial. in the automobile sector, the mileage requirement, but permits everybody to strive to a higher mark, up chiselling on the mileage stickers on cars. it improves our energy efficiency. that's a good thing. that is spurring growth. but the kind of reforms we have on wall street have not solved the problem. look at what happened last week's at usb, not only wild and irresponsible behavior, but then we have attorney general holder determining that he general holderubs the fullest -- attorney general holders a betty cannot prosecute ubs because he is afraid ubs is too big to shut down and would destroy financial markets. i thought dodd-frank was supposed to fix that. what was so disconcerti
will report. the clerk: h.r. 1, an act making appropriations for the department of defense and other departments and agencies of the government for the fiscal year ending september 30, 2011, and for other purposes. mr. coats: mr. president, i would like to call up amendment 3391. the presiding officer: the clerk will report the amendment. the clerk: the senator from indiana, mr. coats, proposes amendment numbered 3391. mr. coats: mr. president, i'm cognizant of the fact that we will have a series of votes beginning in just 15 minutes, and so even though the unanimous consent request on this amendment is for 30 minutes equally divided, i'm going to try to judiciously use this time between myself and senator alexander to explain why we're offering this amendment and hopefully our colleagues will be persuaded to support us when we vet on this probably tomorrow. we are all, of course, sensitive to the pain and damage inflicted by mother nature on the northeast. in fact, some of the northeast is getting some more of that pain with the storm up there today. no state or region in our countr
for secretary of defense -- chuck hayes cogel. how will these nominations go/ guest: chuck hagel has not been nominated yet. john kerry was announced by the white house on friday. the fact that kerry was announced does not bode well for the trial balloon of chalk .eguck hagel we have seen john mccain say they are going to vote for him. chuck hagel has been questioned by a number of republicans. lindsey graham is considered a more moderate republican. there is a concern with hagel and the pro-israel lobby. they tried engagement with iran for the first year of the administration and went to the toughest sanctions in history. hagel has been an opponent of those sanctions. if he changed his view, i think that would improve his chances. look at where he is on the foreign policy debate. obama has taken positions that are more to the center than hagel. host: if senator kerry becomes secretary of state, what does he bring? guest: john kerry will have to navigate the new relationship with political islam. as countries open up more and become more democratic, part is affiliated with the muslim brotherh
represent the last and most dogged line of german defense in all of italy. as he led his platoon in a flanking maneuver, three german machine guns opened fire from covered positions just 40 yards away, pinning his men to the ground. inouye stood up to the attack and was shot in the stomach. ignoring his wound, he proceeded to attack and destroy the first machine gun nest with hand grenades and fire from his thompson sub machine gun. after being informed of the severity of his wound by his platoon sergeant, he refused treatment and rallied his men for an attack on the second machine gun position which he also successfully destroyed before collapsing from blood loss. as his squad distracted the third machine gunner, inouye called toward the final bunker, eventually drawing within ten yards. as he raised himself up and cocked his right arm to throw his last grenade into the fighting position, a german inside fired a rifle grenade that struck him in the right elbow, severing most of his arm and leaving his own primed hand grenade reflexively clenched in a fist that suddenly didn't be
the fiscal cliff some democrats because they would finally get the defense cuts that they have been clamoring for and it would actually serve their purposes. i dismiss that. >> to be fair, we have even had some republicans who have said that that they want. members of the tea party don't want to have anything to do with -- they want us to go into default. they want us to face these problems. howard dean on the democratic side saying, look, if we don't do it, we have got this other plan and he talks about the fiscal cliff to what alisyn was just saying. listen. >> as you know, i believe the country would be better off if would get another revenueiff. to be serious about balancing the budget and get defense cuts which the congress will never vote for otherwise. we will get some human services cuts which i don't like but we are in a deep hole and everybody is going to have to put somethinged in something. the truth the belief that millionaires or people who make more than $250,000, you tax them more that's going to solve the deficit problem that's just not so. i think it would be better for the
1. at the same time, the federal government, including our armed forces and defense workers, will undergo deep, across the board budgetary cuts. these are the cuts that president obama promised during the campaign would never take effect. well we need to reduce spending, we can do it in a much smarter, more targeted way. going over the so-called fiscal cliff will lead to devastating job losses, at a time when american families and small business owners are still struggling to get back on their feet. in contrast, the nonpartisan congressional budget office estimates extending tax rates afro-americans would create nearly 1.8 million jobs and increase the nation -- rates for americans would create nearly 1.8 million jobs. congress's action to make the first tax bracket and% instead of 50% -- the child tax credit -- 10% instead of a 15% raised the child tax credit. there is still time to act. both president obama and senator harry reid claim that an achievable plan is one that can pass both houses of congress. republicans agree. the republican controlled house has taken a step i
than twice as much as what the white house is currently asking for. it's got many, many more defense cuts than the administration has ever even considered. republicans hate it, simpson-bowles, the come together plan. paul ryan, the big deficit guy, or so he says, he was on the simpson-bowles commission, and he voted against it, as did every other house republican on the commission. the white house saw no reason to embrace something that raised taxes so sky high and so the white house brought out something that was frankly to the right of simpson-bowles. their budget was to its right and they thought it had a better chance of passing. they thought it was a compromise. but the house republicans did not respond the same way. when they brought out the ryan budget, which was their budget alternative, they didn't compromise. they went way to the right. there was no compromise in it at all. that is fact number one. number two, in 2010 republicans won the midterm election. 2011 the white house agreed to a deal that was all spending cuts. it is the budget control act. it cuts spending by $1.8
outperformers is a broad one. higher growth names outperforming versus last year which was more defensive. what you do is look at the real laggards, hp and intel come to mind real quickly. >> right. >> they are down low for very good reasons. they are reason to be the desk top computing is definitely under siege with more mobile computing. the management issues with hp. all of those things need to be ironed out and as a result the stocks have underperformed. >> are you saying you would buy those here? >> we don't own them right now and not contemplating buying them right now. talk about strategy, you know, this is where you would look if you're espousing this strategy of buying longer term laggards that have underperformed. these are two, you know, exhibit "a" names that you would look at, but you'll have to be patient and you'll have to wait out a lot of internal activity, especially with respect to h and p before you get some growth. >> chris, am i right in thinking that some of michael's darlings are actually some of your dogs for 2013? specifically intel and hp? >> let's look at intel, hp a
side of the budget. we of the look of the defense -- we have to look at the defense side. and we have to look at the mandatory program. i think we do have to make some tough choices. but i also believe that getting that done will provide tremendous certainty for businesses in this country, for families so they know what we are expecting. and that that will really give our economy a shot in the arm, and get money off the sidelines and allow business to invest in with that creates jobs. that is what we need to do for the future. now, the other party that i have been working on and that we have made some progress but we will continue is the country's energy policy. my focus has been on energy efficiency. energy is the first fuel -- every gallon we don't have to spend up oil, not only saves us money, but also on emissions and helps us reduce our dependence on foreign oil and that is good for our national security. so i think we need a comprehensive energy policy in this country in order to protect our national security, in order to ensure that we begin to clean up our environment better,
lugar made of richard murdock, and murdoch's defense of himself as it is the same thing. he said he doesn't want to legislate. he said i don't want to legislate. he said he would make the compromise necessary to get things done. murdoch said that's exactly what i want to do. if you let me i'm going to throw sand in the gear of government and prevent things from getting done. i don't agree with that consensus that has been with washington for so long presenting a different path. and that is true with of the rise of the tea party movement of 2010. voters that voted for the tea party candidate or not tricked into the kind of tactics that supporters of the tea party movement were going to fall back to washington. they said they were willing to take the government to the in of the cliff and over the cliff because they said that was the only way that they could achieve the kind of political and that they wanted to see. so, and the ending seems to me that the fundamental problem here or a fundamental problem is dealing with such a lack of faith in government and such a disconnection the di
of the defense budget had proposed a really remarkable set of additional cup acts and means tested programs of one sort or another. i even saw the columnist in this lucid analytic reporters, david rogers at "politico" show his emotion in the course of writing about that. and of course we had yesterday a successful republican filibuster on the senate democratic plan for extending a lower student loan rate and financing it in a particular way. i noted in "new york times" that this is the 21st successfulsuesr republican filibuster in this congress. most of it is not a few of cose consequentialqu as the filibustr was in the first two years because there is a republican house in any case and democratic wishes from the white house ando senate are likely to be b realized. but the fact that it's been sobo commonplace and is taken for fr granted that in most press reports the word terror never is elevated to the story of because it's a procedural motion. it didn't.he 60 the 60 votes it needed. it shows you how much the filibuster has become so routine. listen, our argument can be summarized briefly.
's history on january the first. the federal government and defense workers will undergo across the board budgetary cuts. these are the cuts that president obama promised during the campaign would never take effect. we can do this in a much smarter way. economists have continually warned that going over the fiscal cliff will lead to a devastating job losses at a time when american families and small business owners are still struggling to get back on their feet. non-partisan cbo says extending tax rates would create more than 1.8 billion jobs and increase gdp by almost 1.5% next year. these tax cuts were good for the economy and good for families. the actions to make the first tax bracket 10% instead of 15% made a big difference to a lot of american families. going over the fiscal cliff is avoidable. there is still time to act. but president obama and 10 eric -- and harry reid believe it is one that can pass both houses. republicans agree. republicans have taken the step in the right direction. they pass legislation to replace this with responsible target it once and to bring our nation r
with a narrow plan like you described, if he came out now with a big plan that did entitlements and defense, did spending, and said, simpson-bowles revised here, let's go forward, there would be a deal but it will never happen. >>gregg: will republicans regret they did not vote for plan "b"? >> they may feel like this did in august, they should have taken the deal but, look, the real problem the republicans should regret is never having a public strategy, and get the taxes off early on, and done that and made their case about the debt and been in this national debate because they have paid the price. >> they never talked economic growth. >> guys, hang on. when we come back we have a lot to talk about including the newtown massacre and the latest on the benghazi report. you know how painful heartburn can be. for fast, long lasting relief, use doctor recommended gaviscon®. only gaviscon® forms a protective barrier that helps block stomach acid from splashing up- relieving the pain quickly. try fast, long lasting gaviscon®. >>heather: the mother of a marine veteran saying he has been admitted to
cliff. there are a number that are angry over the cuts that would come from defense. there is growing sentiment among some of them that if you go over the cliff, you look at the first real dollar to dollar ager spending cuts in a generation. some of them are eager about that. not necessarily a public thing, but they are talking amongst themselves. is this the worst thing if we go over it? some are looking at the same situation with tax rate. it is not the worst thing if we can suddenly raise our are sent to joe tax rates -- of tax rates. the center is boehner and obama and the other leadership posts there publicly saying no, no. you cannot go over this. we should stop this. host: barbara from texas. caller: thank you for taking my call this morning. merry christmas. i have been listening to c-span a lot. i have got some comments and one question. i do believe that we need to go over a physical cliff. doing a deal at the end of the year is getting old because everything is rushed. we need to sit back and go over the cliff and let these guys see if they cannot work out a deal. so far th
